Over at CPO, they have a really good deal bundle on the new Milwaukee M12 Fuel oscillating multi-tool.
For context, the bare tool sells for $149, and a home center has a deal bundle right now where you get the bare tool and a single M12 battery for the same price.
At CPO, they have this special buy priced at $169, model 2526-2411-BNDL.
Here’s what you get:
- M12 FUEL Oscillating Multi-Tool – 2526-20
- (1) 1-3/8 in. High Carbon Steel Wood Blade – 49-25-1101
- (1) 3-1/2 in. Triangle Sanding Pad – 49-25-2001
- (5) 3-1/2 in. Triangle Sandpapers – (1) P60 Grit, (1) P80 Grit, (2) P120 Grit, (1) P240 Grit
- (1) M12 REDLITHIUM CP 1.5 Ah Lithium-Ion Battery – 48-11-2401
- M12 Lithium-Ion Charger – 48-59-2401
- (1) M12 REDLITHIUM CP 2 Ah Lithium-Ion Battery – 48-11-2420
- 15 in. PACKOUT Tool Bag – 48-22-8321
First of all, I am really liking this new Milwaukee brushless oscillating multi-tool. It has a tool-free blade change mechanism, and quite a lot of power and cutting performance for a tool of its size.
With this bundle, you get the tool, a small starter assortment of multi-tool cutting and sanding accessories, an M12 charger, (1) 1.5Ah and (1) 2.0Ah battery, and a Packout tool bag. All this for just $20 more than the bare tool.
This seems like a “run, don’t walk” deal for anyone looking to get this new M12 Fuel OMT in kit format.
I mentioned the bare tool being priced at $149. There’s also a kit, 2526-21XC, which comes with a charger, soft tool bag, and M12 XC 4Ah battery, for $205. Other sellers have it at $219.
Some of you have been commenting that I’ve persuaded you to spend more money than you expected to this holiday season. But with this special buy, which I would presume will only be valid for a limited time, you’re saving quite a but of money compared to the regular kit.
With the bare tool at $149 and the kit at $205 to $219, this deal bundle is an incredibly good bargain at just $169. If you ask me, it’d have been a great bundle deal even without the Packout tool bag.
IF you’ve been looking for a brushless 12V-class oscillating multi-tool, or were considering buying the M12 Fuel OMT at a later time, this is going to be a very hard to deal pass up.
At the time of this posting, 2526-2411 seems to be a CPO-exclusive Milwaukee kit. It’s possible other Milwaukee dealers will have their turn at offering this special buy later in the holiday shopping season. And so, if you’re on the fence, this could either be your only chance to buy this special bundle deal, or it might only be the first opportunity.
Thanks to Tom D for the find, and for volunteering to share some of the blame for draining readers’ wallets and tool budgets!
